Levin: We know so little about Obama and ABC is talking to Newt’s ex-wife
The RightScoop ^ | January 18, 2012 | The Rightscoop

Posted on 01/19/2012 6:04:54 AM PST by opentalk

If you haven’t heard already, Drudge is reporting that Newt’s ex-wife has unloaded on him in a 2 hour interview with ABC News. Suddenly, ABC News went into a civil war over when to air the video because of the South Carolina Primary this weekend. Here are the details from Drudge:

Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband’s career with a single interview. Earlier this week, she sat before ABCNEWS cameras, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours, and her explosive revelations are set to rock the trail....

...Levin covered this on the air and put this into perspective considering how little we know about Obama, his hidden records and shady dealings:

I for one could care less about what Newt’s ex-wife says. We all know he was a dirtbag and I’ve already given him the benefit of the doubt on the fact that he’s changed.

After all, this country is at stake and I’m not going to let some 2-bit media outlet sworn to defend Obama and his Marxist policies at all costs dissuade me from who I’m going to vote for in the primary.

And btw, I’m not saying I’m voting for Newt yet, but he is in my top three.

How can it matter what Newt's ex wife says, if we kept Billy Boy Clinton in the WH even though he habitually and very publicly flunked the ‘husband test’

I found FR from a link on Drudge.

Love what Matt has done TO MSM. Opened the can of worms exposing their ineptness and treachery.

Now on the Subject of Dems and their MSM supporters. Remember Slick Willie was impeached by House but not removed by Senate. And he was re-elected.

Unbelievable double standard.

As far as the Obastard. That is an even bigger leap of faith by the MSM.

I would like to call to your intention that the “control” of the newspapers of the time was a contributing factor to the end of the Whig Party.

It’s not “could care less” once and for all it’s “couldn’t care less”

And what Marianne has to say has to do with a 10M bribe, so it’s not marital stuff.

That is because Slick was "one of them" and Newt is "one of us"!

Rules and laws only apply to non-RATS.

It will matter. I am totally pessimistic about this upcoming election.

We conservatives are always looking for what doesn’t exist. Purity. So, Newt will be attacked by conservatives for not being “conservative enough” after this interview. It doesn’t matter that we are not permitted to know how Obama paid for his college education, the media will convince the “purity” crowd that Newt has to be attacked, leaving us with one more candidate, and the media will convince us that he’s not conservative enough to vote for either.

It all sounds familiar, and the circular firing squad has finished us off.

It matters because Newt is a Republican whereas Clinton was a Democrat. The media will always go out of their way to personally harm a Republican they hate, whereas they will go out of their way to carry water for a Democrat they do like. It’s really just that simple.

It circles back around to "marital stuff"; the FBI dropped the investigation because there was nothing there. In fact, if you read through it all, she was the one trying to sell Newt for contributions to her organization.

This is Peter Jennings' and Marv Albert's old crowd. They imagine they understand somebody else's ex-wife ~ or at least "they knew her" or something like that.

Just exactly what these people imagine they can squeeze out of this story is a good question, and do they imagine they've forgotten their own sex scandals?

Bringing in the ex-wife and paying her to make libelous statements? that’s about as dirty and underhanded as it gets. There was a time when they would have paid someone to kill Newt. You can’t get away with that kind of thing anymore so you have to settle for character assassination. I think most people will recognize this as the assassination attempt that it is and will, hopefully, reject it.

There was NO bribe. Period.

Newt's been 'investigated' - for everything. Between liberals who hated him - and his bitter controlling 'wife' - he was a sitting duck for this type of harassment.

Anyone can be investigated - for anything. YOU can be investigated. Or your neighbor. With a good enough story, the FBI will come out and investigate. Or even a not so good a story. It's their job. They investigate. It's what policing agencies do.

Being investigated is NOT the same thing as being guilty. If Newt had been guilty of anything, the MSM would have run with it - on the front page of every liberal paper in the country. They hated Newt as much as his witchy wife, Marianne.

The fact that NOTHING came of this - and HUNDREDS of other 'investigations' of Newt - makes it reek of political witch hunt.

Newt was found innocent of all except some small thing to do with teaching a class for free - the equivalent of jay walking ... Louis Freeh (FBI) is known for being a 'by the book' kind of guy - there's no way he would have interfered and stopped an investigation if he hadn't seen the stuff being done (against Newt) as political.

As far as his sweet loyal ex-wife is concerned - who hasn't known a bitter controlling vengeful woman? Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned...

The strategy of the left from the start has been to pick off each Republican candidate one by one until there are none left to mount a successful challenge to “The One”. Add to that the “circular firing squad” on the right and you have a disaster on the horizon. This will not end well...

Right, I get depressed when I think about it.

However, Newt now knows what is going to work. He scorced those other guys in the last debate and got positive feedback from the audience in the process.

He knows what to do, despite what the MSM will trump up against him!! He should just stay focused and remember that "O" succeeded with MUCH less experience, credentials or background scrutiny!!! It can be done

maybe the FBI didn’t find anything, but so what? Maybe she does have the goods on him, I sincerely hope not because I would rather have this nincompoop narcissist running than Romney and somebody needs to beat Obama

I have come to the conclusion....
It doesn’t matter who we vote for.
The media and the people behind
the curtain have stacked the election,
and will win no matter who plays their
game.
I believe the best thing for the American
people can do is prepare for the worst. A
complete destruction of world economies,
race war and a nuclear Iran are their tools
for the construction of their new world order.

The Obama SCUM (servile, complaisant, undistinguished media) accept Obama's biographical books (plural!) as all the background investigation required save for the gushing, emotional unbiased comments like "Oh, Gracious God, Thank You So Much! It’s such a blessing to be able to see . . .! Mr. President, thank you for taking time out of your day! Oh, gracious God, thank you so much!"

Looks like good journalism to me.. but I judge based upon my memory of Walter "North Vietnamese Communists' most trusted man in America" Cronkite's entire TV career.

How can it be that Jack Ryan and his ex- both wanted to keep their divorce records sealed but they came out anyway because Ryan stood in the way of ObaMao's political ambitions?

Do you honestly believe that the enemedia will treat Newt any differently?

Everyone else knows the program by now. I wonder how much $$$ the former Mrs. Gingerich will get to appear on TV and make herself ridiculous! If what she has to say is so significant, why didn’t she say it before?

The MSM is pimping her out to make Newt look bad. Duhhhh.

what Marianne has to say has to do with a 10M bribe, so it’s not marital stuff.

Did you just fall off the turnip truck or something?

1.) It was the damn CLINTON DoJ and Louis Freeh who refused to pursue what was clearly nothing but a pack of lies and innuendo against Newt, and it is most certainly "marital" because it should be obvious that Newt's ex is a bitter old bat and wants to destroy him, she is the quintessential 'victim'.

You must have missed all the invective and smears directed at Newt during the reign of Emperor Billigula but as many have said, we’re not electing a Pope, we’re electing a President and at the present time the only candidate that has the intellectual and debating firepower to take down 0bama-lama-ding-dong, is Newt Gingrich.

Listening to Rush, he said the Newt ex-wife interview was done last Friday. They were holding it and supposedly arguing about when to release it.

reminds me of GE/NBC cronyism, with Obama promoting ABC- Disneyland, as they run this.

.

I'm stunned Newt could be faithful to a woman like Marianne who felt blackmail and intimidation were her personal right.

Is there a reason she was treated like she was? She's acting like a bully now - was that part of the marriage?

Will the press look at her dirty laundry? They were VERY interested in Linda Tripp and Monica. And Paula - and more than willing to trash those women. What's their excuse for this double standard? The press always has an excuse for why dems are treated one way - and we're treated another way. Funny how they're so willing to believe their own excuses.

Newt's starting to look more sympathetic.

She comes across as one bitter narcissistic type. The "press" is so ready to exploit her... to help spread her bitterness. Why?

Can we reciprocate? There are newsmen who have been unfaithful.

Maybe some of US don't want to see - or READ the news - when it's written by people who were unfaithful to their marriage partners. Let's parade them out and make our call. Turn about's fair play, right?

Anyone know some bitter ex-wives of newsmen? Let's have some fun with them... Are you ready ABC? CBS? Are all your editors and reporters 'pure'?

Maybe he's a Romney guy.

I am not a betting guy, but from years of reading Drudge, I do not think he is a "Romney guy". He gave up a good gig with FOX over an anti-abortion photo he wanted to use and just walked away.

Like many I would love to see Newt wipe the debate floor with the cretin who inhabits 1600 Penn. Ave. Newt is very bright, very informed but not always on the right team.

Santorum also has made a few poor calls on friends. Overall his record is much better than Newt on the personal life.

If either of those candidates winds up with the nomination, I will gladly vote for them. If Romney is the nominee, I am going to have to do some serious consideration about voting for him. Not sure I can actually do that.
